DULUX AcraTex FastCoat can be applied to any sound masonry substrate, it has been carefully formulated to produce a tough intermediate skimcoat over properly set joints on fibre cement sheets then ready for subsequent texture coats. DULUX AcraTex can also be used over other masonary substrates as a stand alone texture providing it is applied in two coats then topcoated with DULUX AcraTex AcraShield Advance.
